Manhattan Grill, currently located in the former Legal Arts Building on 7th Street will soon be opening a new location at the corner of 5th Street and Muhammad Ali Blvd. Owners Cheryl & Mitch Lary are spending $100,000 to renovate the 2,300 square foot space previously occupied by a coffee shop.
The new location will seat up to 80 and operate between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The Lory’s hope to expand hours to as late as 6:00 p.m. in the future. The restaurant will take the highly visible corner location in the Republic Building, owner by Venterra Real Estate. The 11-story structure was built in 1911 and is nearly completely leased. Manhattan Grill’s menu tops out at about $6.00 and includes a wide selection of breakfast foods, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, and desserts.
The current Manhattan Grill location will continue to operate until its lease expires in November. The owners are currently negotiating to extend the lease with new owners Jaytee Properties.
